Boiling the wort50 viewsThe recipe determines how long you boil for, what kind of hops you add, and when. Generally when you add hops early in the boil, they make the beer bitter. Later in the boil, gives the beer that flowery, hoppy smell. I use a hop bag, so there's not a lot of crap in the pot when I go to siphon later on.

Getting up to temp..49 viewsAlmost where I want it to be... You add the water at a temperature a little higher than you need, then as soon as it hits your target, add the grain

Heating up water..48 viewsSomething you do a lot of when brewing! Here I am heating up the water that the grain will be added to, in order to convert the grain into fermentable sugars and give the yeast something to eat.. this is in a 40qt Winco aluminum pot on my stove (canning element), along with a heat stick

Pre-heating the mash tun48 viewsI add hot water to pre-heat the Igloo so that when I am mashing, it does not lose its heat. It's important to try and keep the grain at a specific temperature.
